welcoming billie // a home birth story

i still haven't quite found the words to describe just how amazing this entire experience was. from taking a stroll around the neighborhood while sarah tried to get her labor in full gear, to getting the text at 1:43am that it was go time, to walking into their house 10 minutes later and hearing a little squeaky cry coming from the back room. once she was ready, Billie came into this world quick. she was received with so much gentle love... in her very own home.

not a day has gone by since that i don't think about this incredible event i was invited to witness. this was my first time shooting a birth, and while i may not have been there for the exact minute when billie entered the world, it had no less of an impact on me. thank you to sarah & lea for trusting me to document these extremely personal moments...
